Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the music industry has had to make huge changes this year. Along with artists canceling or postponing their tours, many have also had to push back their albums and think of creative ways to film their music videos from home. Fortunately, one thing remains the same: the 2020 MTV VMAs. The annual awards show always takes place on Sunday, August 30, and these 2020 MTV VMA nominations keep fans looking to see who comes out on top by the end of the night. .For the first time since 2013, the VMAs will return to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, but fans can look forward to live performances in all five New York boroughs: Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Bronx and Staten Island.

Since fans found out the show was still on-going this year, they’ve shared their thoughts on who should be nominated for each category. Ahead of the official VMA nominations list on July 30, MTV only shared their picks for PUSH Best New Artist, so fans were eager to see the full list.

When the big reveal came, fans were happy to see Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga lead the pack with nine nominations each. Many of those names, including Video of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Collaboration, were for their joint single “Rain On Me”.

Meanwhile, Billie Eilish and The Weeknd came right behind them with six nominations each, followed by Taylor Swift with five.

The ARMYs will be happy to hear that BTS has received nominations for Best Pop, Best K-Pop, and Best Choreography for “ON” from their. Soul Card: 7 album. In 2019, the group received four nominations for Best K-Pop, Best Collaboration, Best Art Direction, and Best Choreography, and, while the feat is impressive, fans have criticized VMAs for creating a whole new category for K-Pop, calling it an effort to increase voter engagement without giving BTS the recognition it deserved in the big categories. BTS’s latest name for Best Pop is a step in the right direction.
